Date Night at Gateway Arch National Park
When it comes to date night, we know St. Louisans have quite an array of scenic views, fantastic dining and relaxing activities to choose from. But if you want to enjoy the city with your significant other in a way that doesn’t involve the usual dinner and a movie, Gateway Arch National Park offers a unique experience that’s sure to spark up some romance.
Start the evening off right by taking a stroll through the newly renovated landscape surrounding the Gateway Arch. This 90-acre oasis is the perfect spot to discover diverse plant life and take in views of the Mississippi River. Bring a cozy blanket and find a spot in the grass to take in the beauty of the Gateway Arch. Feeling a little more adventurous? The updated park landscape is complete with five miles of biking and walking paths, ideal for all the active couples out there.
After a relaxing evening on the park grounds, head inside and take a tram ride to the top of America’s tallest man-made monument. Hold your significant other tight as you watch the city come to life from 630 feet up. Nothing says romance quite like stunning views at sunset!
If you’re not quite ready for the night to end, walk down to the riverfront and hop on a Skyline Dinner Cruise, where you’ll find a gourmet dinner buffet, music and the best nighttime views St. Louis has to offer. This two-hour cruise will have you slow-dancing the night away on the Mississippi. Why have dinner and a movie when you can have dinner and a cruise?
